If you’re writing articles for content farms and similar, 2011 promises to be an interesting year, and not in a good way. Once Google’s algorithm change hits, buyers of your services will be looking for original content.
This article is interesting, Google changes search algorithm to favor original content as crowd-sourced content explodes. It reports:
“New figures from online outsourcing marketplace Freelancer show the number of jobs for writing or rewriting content increased five-fold during 2010. The number of jobs writing articles leapt from 7,031 to 38,853, while the number of jobs re-writing articles jumped from 2,131 to 20,129.”
Whew… No wonder Google’s concerned about junk. And Freelancer’s just one outsourcing site…
The sheer number of these “writing and rewriting” jobs means that people are making money from the content. Until Google drops the hammer, of course. It will be even more interesting to see how many of these jobs are offered three months from now.
I’ve been harping on about writing quality material for years. It’s just good business sense. Quality sells. Yes, finding writing jobs which demand quality (and pay for it) takes a little more effort. Alternatively, you need to develop your own blogs.
